BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Joslyn Tinkle matched her career high with 20 points and No. 4 Stanford routed Colorado 80-54 Saturday.

Toni Kokenis and Chiney Ogwumike added 19 points each for Stanford (15-1, 6-0 Pac-12), which won its 12th in a row since its only loss of the season to Connecticut 68-58 on Nov. 21.

Stanford got a scare when senior forward Nnemkadi Ogwumike, who came in leading the conference in scoring at 24.0 points per game, tripped in a scramble under the basket and fell to the floor in pain with an apparent ankle injury four minutes into the game. But she returned midway through the first half after getting her ankle re-taped and finished with 15 points.

Brittany Wilson and Jen Reese both scored 10 points for Colorado (13-3, 2-3), which was 11-0 before beginning league play.
